The Dallas Cowboys are in a good position after six weeks. They sit at 4-2 and are expected to get quarterback, Dak Prescott, back from injury for their Week 7 game. One reason for their early season success is the depth of their roster.
Despite having countless injuries, the Cowboys have done well with “next man up.” In fact, with all the playmakers on the roster, a few guys are being left out of the regular rotation. Each of these players contributed in Week 6 and deserves to have a bigger role and more snaps moving forward.
Without further ado, here are three underutilized Cowboys who should have more opportunities moving forward.
3 underused Cowboys players who deserve more snaps moving forward
3. Chauncey Golston, Defensive Line
The Cowboys’ defensive line has been one of their bright spots this season. It might be the one position on their roster with the most depth. One player that is flying under the radar is Chauncey Golston.
The third-round pick in the 2021 NFL draft, has yet to get much playing time in his career. But, he usually makes an impact when he is out there. In Week 6 against the Eagles, Gholston recorded three tackles, one sack, and one tackle for loss.
Sunday was the most defensive snaps he played in a game this season with 28. Plus, his defensive snaps have now increased in three straight weeks. Dallas should feel comfortable giving him more of an opportunity. They invested a premium pick in the former Iowa product so it is time to see what they have.
